BOOK NOW for the 2024 Ride Leader Training Camp in Girona, northern Spain. Ride the same routes as Grand Tour Professionals in the warm spring weather of historic Girona whilst taking your British Cycling Ride Leader Training Course.

We have partnered with well established training camp and cycling holiday provider Eat Sleep Cycle  to offer a unique way of gaining your British Cycling endorsed Ride Leader Qualification.

The Ride Leader Qualification qualifies cyclists to deliver guided bike rides and is for experienced road cyclists looking to develop ride leading skills. If you are seeking to lead rides at your club, group, or even business then this qualification is essential for you as many insurance companies are insisting on leaders having this qualification to satisfy their criteria and without it you may not be insured. It combines the Level 1 and Level 2 course into two days of practical and useful learning.

The course covers group riding etiquette, route planning, advanced communication, group management on longer rides and over challenging and traffic free terrain, decision making and advanced risk management.

Our team of tutors and coaches are experts in their fields and have a wealth of knowledge and experience meaning that you will get expert tuition, coaching and guidance throughout your time with us.

Who is it for?

  • Experienced road riders who wish to lead rides
  • Those wanting to start a new career as a professional ride leader
  • Cycling Coaches who want to become qualified to ride with a group
  • Those looking to secure part time paid work in the sunshine sharing their experience with others

Girona

Girona seems to be home to more than half of the world’s professional peloton. Many of the Grand Tour professionals have made their home here and prestigious names such as Christian Meir and David Millar have set up businesses which you will visit during your stay.

You will stay at the Four Star Hotel Carlemany in central Girona and ride out with Manchester Cycling Academy leaders each day on training rides on the quiet and traffic free routes around Girona. Classroom sessions will take place in the late afternoons at Eat Sleep Cycle headquarters in southern Girona and the practical elements will take place on famous routes such as Els Angles or to Lake Banyoles. These are roads which professional cycling teams use every day and you are likely to see many teams out training.

Whilst this is not a high performance training camp, on some sessions we will cover 40-50 miles. You are expected to have good cycling ability and be a confident and competent road rider able to ride 40-50 miles at one time.

Other sessions will see us travel much shorter distances as we will concentrate on the more technical aspects including group riding etiquette, advanced communication, group management, decision making and advanced risk management.

You will receive the British Cycling Ride Leader Combined award. For full details please follow this link.

Included in the five day programme are two guided rides around Girona where we will take will show you the hip cafes, cycling hotspots and Game of Thrones film locations before we head to our base where the classroom sessions will begin and also take you on day-long ride to the stunning coastline along the Costa Brava. These road are reported to be amongst the most beautiful in the world and there will be plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy the spectacular views.
